Shoreham Vehicle Auctions (SVA) is celebrating 50 years of trading this month, and is holding three special auctions in aid of three charities through the month of September to mark the momentous occasion.
The company began trading in 1961, and currently sells around 7,000 vehicles a year through 11 monthly auctions, including a weekly fleet and finance sale, a light commercial, HGV & plant sale, and a weekly evening dealer direct sale.
All monies raised from the charity auctions, which will be held during SVA’s normal car and van sales through the month of September, will go to the nominated charity of the day. Donations are being supplied by SVA’s customers, suppliers and local businesses, with some of the donations already including a Fourball at Kingsbarns Golf Links in Fife, a cricket bat signed by the Sussex County Cricket Club and dinner and one night stay at the Haselbury Mill Somerset.
Alex Wright, managing director of Shoreham Vehicle Auctions said: “Celebrating 50 years of trading is a great achievement and what better way to commemorate this special occasion, than by raising money for a good cause? The charities chosen are charities that we as a team at SVA already actively support. We expect there to be a good turnout at the events, and may even throw in a free souvenir! For those interested, a tally of the total donations will be available on our website, so be sure to keep an eye on it.”
